To provide for an accounting of total United States contributions to the United Nations.
This bill requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to report annually to Congress regarding all assessed and voluntary U.S. contributions to the United Nations (U.N.) and its affiliated agencies and related bodies during the previous fiscal year. The report shall include: (1) the total amount of all assessed and voluntary U.S. contributions to the U.N. and its affiliated agencies and related bodies; (2) the approximate percentage of U.S. contributions to each such agency or body in a fiscal year when compared with all such contributions in that fiscal year; and (3) the amount, description, and purpose of each contribution, the identity of the donating U.S. agency, and the identity of the recipient U.N. agency or body. The first report shall include information for the previous three fiscal years. OMB shall post a version of such report on a publicly available website.
The United Nations wastes money and is an international bureaucracy. There is internal corruption and they don't stop corrupt governments like Maduro in Venezuela. The UN promotes abortion and other liberal issues. They are anti-Israel. They allow US enemies to speak freely and suppress views that don't conform to their ideological bias. Numerous cases of sexual abuse by their peacekeeping forces. The list of negatives goes on and on. We need more than transparency. We need a major reform of the UN and accountability.
